North Western Lead Co (Hyde) Ltd has invested in a brand new printing plant to create a new, clean and highly efficient production facility for its entire range of coloured films.

The £50,000 project took just five months to complete and has already doubled the company’s production capacity for its range of films, which includes leading brands Decra Glow, Rainbow Film and Spectrum Film.

Stephen Hart, managing director of North

Western Lead Co (Hyde) Ltd, said: We’re absolutely delighted to announce this strategic investment into a fantastic new production facility. The move has enabled us to completely overhaul the whole flow of work within the department, which means that we have been able to improve efficiency, minimise downtime and ensure fast, high quality printing for our ever expanding customer base.”

As part of the project, NWL laid new floors throughout the building and coated them to eliminate the dust which commonly rises from concrete floors. The company also incorporated state of the art extraction to ensure a good healthy working environment for staff, whilst creating a clean area for printing. This has minimised the problem of film contamination and improved efficiency.

The new facility produces all of NWL’s coloured

films, including its stunning Spectrum Film range, which was launched early last year. The range is designed to appeal to customers who prefer slightly thicker films. With some 140 films in the collection, it is one of the most extensive ranges available today.

North Western Lead Co (Hyde) Ltd was established in 1946 and is a leading supplier of decorative glass overlay products, including glass bevels, self adhesive strip lead, film and fused tiles. The company’s flagship product - Decra Led® - is a self adhesive lead strip. Manufactured from ingot

Grahame Barn, FMB Scotland Director, said:

“The construction industry is key to so much of what we hope to achieve across Scotland including more homes, improved transport, better schools and hospitals. The majority of building work in Scotland is carried out by small and medium sized enterprises which form the backbone of the Scottish economy, which is why the Scottish Parliament must do everything in its power to support these smaller companies in helping to build a greener Scotland, safeguard jobs and skills and create favourable conditions to trade in.”


For many businesses like Radbury Double Glazing, the bankruptcy of its biggest customer almost certainly spells disaster. But it’s not all doom and gloom out there. Since partnering with PVCu fabricator Sash UK the plucky Ayr-based window and door company has seen business grow month-on-month to become one of its most substantial accounts.

When Radbury’s main source of business, installing windows in multi-story developments, took an unexpected and sudden turn the Company found itself in the heart-breaking position and one all too familiar to some of laying off most of its longstanding workforce and ceasing manufacturing operations.

But undeterred, prudent owner Lesley

Leggat set about rebuilding her family-run business with the help of carefully chosen trade supplier, Sash UK. “We gave it some serious consideration and Sash UK came out tops. It ticked all the boxes. We’ve found all the staff there to be very helpful and proactive. The free marketing package gave us everything we needed to get started and the products and pricing are second to none”, explained Lesley.

“Visiting Sash UK’s impressive facilities reinforced our confidence in its capabilities and it was great to be able to put faces to names. We haven’t looked back since, re- establishing a good trade customer base and developing our domestic business”, Lesley added.
